Cheek Implants in Seattle Washington
Cheek implants are used to improve a flat maxilla and flat cheek profile. The implants are specifically designed for cheek augmentation and there are many sizes and shapes available from different manufacturers using a variety of materials. Most commonly used are Silastic and Gortex. The most common types are malar and sub-malar.
Surgical placement of cheek implants takes place through an incision inside the mouth just above the front teeth. The appropriate sized cheek implants are then placed inside a pocket directly over the cheek bone and once they are positioned, the skin will be closed with dissolvable sutures. After the cheek implants are in place, it is rare to have them migrate or move. Swelling in the cheeks lasts from two to three weeks; however, some mild residual swelling can occur up to two to three months after the surgery.
